How has your year been? It's time to evaluate, and develop new intentions. My intention is to inspire toward positive organizations where people and performance thrive.

OCAI Online aims to contribute to positive workplaces by offering the online culture survey so people can work on their culture.

If you are strategic about culture, OCAI Online's next open workshop on Positive Culture Change Leadership is scheduled for May 2018! More information and registration is available at a first come first serve basis.

But before we look at intentions, let's look back at my best liked 12 articles to date - including one "evergreen" article that received less likes because I didn't promote it on social media but that is worth reading!

Here's a list of recommended reads:
